New choice for the Book Club – ‘Of Mice and Men’ by John Steinbeck

Our first classic! Such a well-studied and famous book, it is still required reading in many schools and has been adapted countless times for screen, stage and radio. It’s only 120 pages long and harks back to 1937, some of us studied it for GCSEs many moons ago yet most of us know nothing about it. Chosen by an English teacher and highly recommended, will we love it or will it be too dated? Will we pick up on the imagery and the deep rooted themes without looking at it as an academic text? Let’s find out!

New choice for the Book Club – ‘We are all Completely Beside Ourselves’ by Karen Joy Fowler

Here’s the latest choice for the Book Club: ‘We are all Completely Beside Ourselves’ by Karen Joy Fowler. I don’t know anything about this other than the blurb, and I don’t know anyone that has read it so I have absolutely no preconceptions, but it certainly did its job and successfully drew me in. I can’t wait to find out what happens on page 77…!

Stay tuned to find out what we think.

New for the Book Club – And the Mountains Echoed – by Khaled Hosseini

The latest choice for the Chamonix Book Club is one I’m very excited about. ‘And the Mountains Echoed’ by Khaled Hosseini is a book that has been on my ‘to read’ list for some time, as I would safely put ‘The Kite Runner’ and ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ in amongst my favourite books of all time. I think Khaled Hosseini is a wonderful writer, whose previous novels have been both heart wrenching and beautiful.

I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of my copy and can’t wait to get started!

Can't wait!
